Manchester United v Real Sociedad team news

Erik ten Hag has already confirmed that Anthony Martial is out injured and will once again miss out here.

Luke Shaw and Donny van de Beek also missed training this week and it remains to be seen if they can play here.

Facundo Pellistri is the only other known absentee although the likes of Marcus Rashford and Lisandro Martinez picked up small injuries against Arsenal.

Our prediction: Manchester United v Real Sociedad

Erik ten Hag is likely to make changes here and it will be interesting to see how he balances that rotation while also keeping the momentum rolling.

Sociedad are the hardest opponent – on paper – in this group and beating them at home would get the group stage off to a great start.

We’ll go with a professional 2-0 victory, some minutes in the legs for those who need them and a goal in each half to keep the winning run going.
